NEWLY-APPOINTED Games and Amusements Board (GAB) Commissioner Mar Masanguid of Davao City lauded Engr. Jilson Basang of MB Northstar Boxing Promotions for promoting professional boxing in the country.
Masanguid was the special guest of honor during Basang’s boxing presentation dubbed as “The Redemption: Clash of Champions” held Sept. 15 at the Antonio R. Floirendo Gym in Panabo City.
“I would like to thank Engr. Jilson Basang and the MB Northstar Promotions for making this boxing event here in Panabo,” said Masanguid, also popularly known as the founder and National President of the Solid Duterte Supporter’s Group D’ Original Nationwide.
Masanguid also lauded the support by the Panabo City Government under Mayor James Gamao and the Barangay Una Boxing Program of Rep. Antonio “Tonyboy” Floirendo.
“Kailangan din natin ang mga supporta ng ating mga LGU upang mapaunlad at matulunan talaga ang boxing sa ating bansa,” said Masanguid.
Masanguid, a former radio announcer and barangay captain in Davao City, vowed to continue his support to boxing especially in Mindanao.
He promised to attend the next boxing event of MB Northstar Promotions on November 25 in Tagum City.
Masanguid had replaced former PBA player Fritz Gaston as GAB Commissioner last month.
“Siya (Masanguid) ang dahilan kung bakit tumakbong presidente si Mayor Rody Duterte,”” said boxing judge Alberto “Brembot” Dulalas.
Meanwhile, Basang, who is also the president of the Mindanao Professional Boxing Association (MinPROBA) thanked Masanguid for gracing the free-to-the-public event supported also by City Administrator Atty.
